Moscow Methodist

Moscow United Church History

The early settlers of the Moscow District were God Fearing men and women, ever mindful of their religious responsibilities and obligations. Both the Wesleyan and Episcopal branches of the Methodist Church were represented in the community.

The Methodists realized that a meeting house or church must be built. A sanctuary known as the White Church was built in 1865 on the site of the present Moscow cemetery . It was later taken down and moved to Petworth.

The Wesleyan Methodist Church was built in the year 1869, a substantial stone structure and since the union is known as “The Moscow United Church”. The stone for this beautiful building was contributed by Mr. John Baker.

When the church was being built there was much discussion concerning a bell. The building committee concluded that they would have to do without one as finances had hit bottom. They were quite surprised to learn that a bell was waiting to be picked up in Napanee. The bell was placed in position in time for the opening and dedication. The bell was contributed by Mr George Garrison.

Moscow was part of the Wilton circuit, now it is part of the East Camden Pastoral Charge. Two major renovations have taken place the first in 1907 and cost $1600.00 and reopened on November 24th . In January 1964 the congregation decided that a major renovation take place.

On Sunday October 24th a “new Moscow United Church” was visited by 400 hundred persons who attended a special afternoon service.
